Welcome to Mannywood 2.0.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been on the road for what seems like the last month, but that all changes on Monday night when the team returns home for a seven-game homestand that is action packed for fans, and features some unfinished business.
The highlight of the homestand is the Dodger Stadium debut of four-time All-Star Manny Machado. Fans will be able to see the team's new superstar up close and personal, as they finish up their season series with the Milwaukee Brewers that began last weekend in the Badger State against the National League Wild Card leaders.
The Boys in Blue defeated the Brew Crew in two of three games over that weekend, but the season series between the two seemingly playoff bound teams will ultimately be decided over the next four days.
Following the Brewers, Dodger Stadium is expected to be sold out over the weekend as the reigning World Series Champion Houston Astros come to La La Land for a rematch of one of the most exciting and exhilarating Fall Classic's we've seen in recent memory.
Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander is expected to start the opener on Friday night and the series will conclude on Sunday with American Cy Young candidate Gerrit Cole taking the mound in the finale.
Here's how the entire homestand breaks down:
